Morphology dependent voltage sensitivity of gold nanostructures
Huang, Yu (2010) Morphology dependent voltage sensitivity of gold nanostructures. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
In this thesis, the sensitivity of a range of plasmonic gold nanostructures to changes in ambient electric potential has been studied using a high quality objective-type dark-field imaging spectrometer, which was capable of measuring the signal from single nanoparticles. Optical response of the nanostructure to the change of physiologically relevant potential has been investigated experimentally and theoretically. Simulations to predict the sensitivity to potential changes were in good qualitative agreement with experimental data.
